The living room

I love a good living room–Greg not so much.  I like a place to visit with people sans TV.  It is always the place I go to spend time in the Bible and to spend time with God.  I want it to be cozy and beautiful.  Here’s the before and after of our living room (or should I say my living room since Greg doesn’t spend time there!)  The first 3 pictures are the color on the walls before, and the remaining pics are the after color.  The first pic includes the old carpet.

My mother has a full basement in her home that is full of forgotten treasures.  I took some time in my last visit to search through with a new eye.  Things that seem like junk can often become beautiful finds.  I found many antique wood frames that were dingy and dirty, and I cleaned and painted them with my acrylics and paint colors from other parts of the house.  Those junky finds are now on my walls.

My style is eclectic.  I love hand-me downs–antiques and others.  It is a pleasure for me to have pieces that mean something.  I am not afraid to repaint furniture, and I love to move furniture (I get that from my dad.)  What I love about our new house is that we have not purchased any new furniture–just spread out for a bit less clutter.

Very grateful for a place to welcome people.
